What happens to people when they make their barren land fertile again? How does it affect a community when nearly extinct animals reflourish? What if we change visualizes these developments and offers an interactive view on the process of ecosystem restoration. The project shows both the challenges and the solutions when it comes to offering nearly 7 billion people worldwide a healthy life on Earth.
We work on restoring the productivity of degraded ecosystems in Bonaire, Mali, Bolivia and India. At the same time, our video reporters allow you to see and experience in a unique way what ecosystem restoration in these areas entails and how it contributes to the health of humans and nature. Use them as your eyes and ears, and gain insight into the daily life and work of people improving their lives by conserving our planet.
You can use this platform in your individual way:
- To aggregate information on ecosystem restoration projects via the video stories, blogs and comments from video reporters and visitors.
- To watch John D. Liu’s films on ecosystem restoration via the cinema page and on his project timeline.
- To find your way in vast databases of knowledge on restoration in the reference library.
- And add your own vision by creating a story and sharing it with your community and the rest of the world.
This website has something for everyone. You can participate in building a collective narrative… a film that is more than a film … it is how in real life we all can work together to heal our planet” [John D. Liu]
